Sports Editor, Jasmine Trapnell sat down with some of the Executive Officer candidates to help students get to know them a bit more. Below you can get to know Ben Clubb, who is running for Sport Officer.

Ben Clubb (Sport Officer candidate) describes himself as fun, driven, and hardworking. During his time at Loughborough Clubb has been involved in multiple sports: he is a committee member of snow sports, played IMS rugby and is also the current LSU Sport Officer.

I asked Clubb who inspires him most, and he responded it is his Mum, as she always gives her time for other people around her.

Clubb’s manifesto details his plans to: enhance student experience; listen to students; evolve the AU, and review the diversity. Click here to read Clubb’s full manifesto.

“Over the past 6 months, I have had the pleasure of being the LSU Sport Executive Officer and AU President. Within this time, I have made some of the much needed changes, including introducing a quarter-zip fleece for the new Kit-Tender, creating a recreational cricket offering, running the biggest Big Match ever and created clarity on BUCS and AU fees.”

I then asked Clubb what his favourite memory is from his time at Loughborough, to which he responded it has to be when he won BUCS Indoor Ski Racing in November 2022.

My next question was an important one for all candidates! I asked, if you had to live in halls for one more year, which hall would you choose? Clubb said he has to stay loyal and chose Elvyn.

The final question I asked, some believe can tell you a lot about a person, others just think it’s a fun ‘get to know you’ question: “if you could be an animal, which one would you be and why?”. Clubb exclaimed he would definitely be a Labrador – as he is fun and energetic!
